Effective Communication: Coaching Deaf People in Sport

May 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Enhance Your Communication Skills AND Meet the Needs of Deaf Participants

Developed in partnership with UK Deaf Sport and the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) this is an interactive workshop delivered by UK Coaching that will help develop your communication skills, so you can fully include deaf people of all ages. It’s very likely that at some point you’ll coach an individual who is deaf. Delivered by coaches who are deaf themselves this workshop will give you the confidence to include them in your sessions alongside your hearing participants. What’s more this workshop will help you develop your non verbal communication skills so your day-to-day coaching sessions will improve.

By the end of the Workshop you will:

  • be aware of deafness and understand the barriers facing deaf people in sport
  • have developed your own communication skills and be able to use them effectively in any coaching session
  • be aware of and understand the pathways for deaf sport to encourage deaf participants to aim high
  • be able to develop an action plan to include deaf people in your coaching session
